had the department of traffic division and supervisor avalos helped us. our idea was to educate the folks. only in 2012 and 2013 four groups came up with very creativity and unique ways to address the problem. i'll start with the process. they developed a distracted warning card. one see of the card warns you about safety traffic accident and the other is street robberies. so you've been hit by a car or mugged. on may 23rd as well as a group of students from lincoln high indoctrinated those cards and all major channels covered this event. this is the first event. it's not just a one-time thing it's the beginning of a bigger and bigger campaign. we've translated this card into chinese and spanish. something similar is in the messages walk save - walk smart and talk smart and be city smart. this is the first draft of the hand out and the posters we're going to distribute. i really like this program they partner with the traffic sf to make sure that the visitors enjoy they're safe day in san francisco. so this will be distributed in hotels and conference centers. a compel different

education has to be a big piece of this. it's in another a staffing issue. you can see they're going through the roof so people are running more red lights. so i think the education pie and if you go back to the statistics the failure to veiled it up 10 percent as the cause for the accidents. so it appears to be education has to be a big you piece of this. as the commissioner said the wave and the eye contact is big hence the campaign about texting. it's literally impossible to go through the city during the day and not having people cross the street not on their cell phones. i look at the numbers and see the facilitys are at 8 we're right on track with having the same high number of facilitys. so i know that staff is going to increase the numbers going up but at the same time would the department feel they're making great progress >> no as we get the newer officers out as part avenue their training with promotions officers come up u come in and it all has to happen at the same time. but we're focusing on the primary collisions because of the economy that we're trying to correct the collisi

with the culture. is how we treat one another? and i think we have to be very clear in our educational process and the communication to our people and what is acceptable behavior and what is unacceptable behavior, and i am often fearful when we try to develop a black letter law if you have all these factors and bullying and you fell outside and that works okay in the courtroom. right? as prosecutors we need clear understanding of the laws to understand whether we have a criminal violation or not, but i am fearful we maybe overly legalistic and the way we deal with on a daily basis and we need to approach this by a global perspective respecting people and understanding we have the same rights and obligations and starting with the adults and i go back to the adults because the adults really have to tow the line here. they really have to walk the talk. i cannot tell you how often i of involved in large mentoring efforts and now in two different places, in l.a. and arizona. i cannot tell you how often the teachers are the ones that set the tone whether we have a respectable environment or and

education attainment rate, which is what we track, is 38.7% in the year 2011, which is the most recent year the debate is available. it has gone up half a percent from the year before. it appears the rate of increase is picking up a bit. it has not gone up that much in the last three or four years. the rate is definitely going up. it is not going up quickly enough and there is still a big gap of where we are today and where we think we need to be, which is much closer to 60%. host: why the gap? guest: a lot of it has to do with the way that we think about higher education in this country and the access to college and all kinds of secondary opportunities for individuals. we tend to think only a certain number of people need to go to college. not everybody needs a college thattion in the 1970's the it's got to a level of 40% of americans getting post secondary credentials or college degree. at that point we thought it feels about right. been close to flat for about 30 years. other countries did not do that. we saw that many countries did not understand they were supposed to stop when they got

the special education. one of final note. last year, the projected ending balance for the 12, 13 school year was $15.67 million and that is also in this hand out. the actual ending balance is now over 34 million, i think that we really need to look at the projections, and what is real and what is not. and make sure that we spen the money, spend it well, and spend it on our students and on the people who do the work. thank you. >> i am katie franklin for the community advisory for special ed and i sent you a packet of documents and i questioned the cuts made to the many school special ed weighted the school formula site allocation for the special ed related supplies. and that is on page 63 of the printed budget book or page 70 of the budget's pdf file under exist eight. and coinciding with the almost 12 million dollar increase, in the special ed budget we are cutting 25,000 from the teacher supply money and that is completely unnecessary and unfair. it is hard to understand the rationale behind these cuts. a week ago, i asked why the cuts were made and what corner was used to decide the amoun

say, but for education. and you talk about the idea that people should know what is in a cycle active drug before they get involved. one of your arguments that i found is that most people that use illegal drugs are not act by your definition it doesn't interfere with parenting or work or relationships. most americans if they heard this they would say you are taking away all of the height and fear that we want our children to hear that it might be better to see to children don't do drugs. even if your argument is true there are people who deutsch illegal drugs and don't suffer consequences. why isn't it better given what you said about the police and networks of crime that than attached? why wouldn't you say it's better to say to kids don't do drugs? >> guest: for one, a professor. one of the things i think is more important is to teach people how to think. so when you say don't do drugs or just say no, there is no sort of thinking going on now. now if you have a curious kid, when you would hope you have coming your kid would be curious to sign on for themselves. so my issue is why not

of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to make change. so the question we have to ask ourselves, are we as adults willing it slow down enough to invite kids to sit down at the table with us and partner? do we have the courage to understand that inclusion takes time and we have have to work more diligently to i invite young people, particul
